With the Primetime Emmy nominations set to be announced next week (July 18, 2013), I don’t think anyone is holding their breath for The Walking Dead to be duly recognized in any of the major awards categories. Even though the show has been setting ratings records for AMC and was the most watched cable TV program in 2012, it’s just not likely that the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences is going to get over their bias against horror and sci-fi shows enough to give The Walking Dead the recognition it deserves.
Shows like FX’s American Horror Story, Showtime’s Dexter, and ABC’s Lost have shown that the Academy is somewhat more willing to honor non-traditional dramas with nominations than they were back in the days when Buffy the Vampire Slayer was snubbed year after year, in spite of the fact that … Read More »

When I heard about a “remake” of John Carpenter’s CLASSIC masterpiece, one of the greatest “chillers” of all time, as well as one of my favorite horror movies ever, I was pissed! I was going to boycott it, and refuse to see this blasphemy! Would you repaint the Mona Lisa? Re carve Venus Di’ Milo?
But then I read something that changed my mind.
IT’S A PREQUEL!!!
This is something they should have made much more public, no one seemed to know it was a prequel.
Finding out what happened at the first camp where the “Thing” was defrosted sounded interesting. I started to watch it with low hopes, expecting a bunch of changes that I was going to hate and kept my laptop handy to tear it to pieces. I had a problem as I began my … Read More »
I like it here. The room is smaller than my apartment was, but not by much. The only people I encounter throughout the day are the guards or the doctor, and if I ignore them they eventually go away. Unless I refuse my medication.
This is definitely better than other places I have been. Nothing like the hospital, with all the patients and the nurses and the psych techs bothering you constantly. I can just sit here all day and listen to the friends inside my head.
Before I arrived here there were so many distractions. Always someone trying to interact with me and force me to hear their stupid thoughts put into words. Why everyone was born with a tongue I have no idea. You should be required to take an I.Q. test in order to get one, in my opinion. … Read More »
The anticipation was killing him. She was so beautiful, tied to the bed like a helpless victim with her wide eyes locked on his in terror. She thrashed back and forth as he stood there, and each time she moved his fists clenched a bit more and the need for blood elevated in his mind. He slid his finger across her thigh; so smooth and pale. He touched her stomach, her hips. She tried to scream but the sounds were muffled thanks to the duct tape firmly sealed across her full, red lips. Tears began to run down her cheeks, taking make-up with them and leaving a streaked trail of black behind. He loved that look. Maybe someday this would come into style, he thought to himself. Appearing on the cover of Vogue, girls with tattered t-shirts and tear stained … Read More »
It was hard to breathe. She had been dreaming of running up a flight of stairs, up and up, but never reaching the top. Higher and higher she would climb, but each step brought her no closer to the light at the top of the staircase. Her lungs were begging for air but it was almost impossible to satisfy the request for some reason.
Janice tried to open her eyes but the darkness that engulfed her would not release its grasp. It felt as if something was preventing her from lifting her eyelids, something stretched out across her face, and each time Janice tried to blink free from this veil she failed.
